An unsold pilot for a proposed series titled "The Jane Powell Show". This would have been a sitcom about a singer who marries a a math professor (played by Russell Johnson) and has to adapt to small-town life.

Overall, I thought it was good. Just a little more intelligent than the typical sitcoms of the day. Jane Powell and Russell Johnson played off of each other pretty well considering it was just the pilot and the first time they'd worked together so closely. I think they would have been pretty good together had it went to series. The costars were cast fairly well, too. I guess our loss was The Beverly Hillbillies' gain in that it freed up Harriet MacGibbon.

You never know..
I look at it this way..The marriage to "Jane Powell" doesn't work out, he changes his name to Roy Hinkley and decides to get away from it all for awhile..hence "The three-hour tour"

Is this an inspiration for Gilligan's Island?
At the least it must have gotten this staid math professor portrayer hired as that staid science professor. There is also the beautiful actress character, the older couple, and the rest of the cast who might be likened to someone on Gilligan's Island if you wanted to stretch the comparison some more.
